OMG, so many amazingly good quotes in this article:
This isn’t to say I’ve stopped believing marriage marks an important boundary for healthy sexual activity. However, I find my parameters not through a checklist of don’ts, but by discovering who and what God calls us—as embodied souls—to be and do.
I’m convinced that the best thing the church can do to encourage holy living is to help us follow Jesus, not a spouse.
I don’t need rules about (not) having sex: I need the church to help me reject the lie that desire is the most important thing.
…I’m not waiting—for a spouse, for sex, for my own little nuclear family. I’m learning what it means to be a Christ follower, distinct from the patterns of the world, active in service, in relationships with others.
